The 7th Reserve Officers' Training Corps Brigade is an Army Reserve Officers' Training Corps brigade based in Fort Knox, Kentucky. It provides training support and oversight to all Army ROTC and Junior ROTC units in the states of Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, and Tennessee.


The brigade is headquartered at Fort Knox, Kentucky, and is subordinate to the eastern region of the US Army Cadet Command.[1]

The brigade comprises several ROTC battalions throughout these states. However, each ROTC unit is generally smaller than a battalion, as each contains around 100 cadets on average.[2] The brigade commands 13 such battalions located at universities throughout Ohio, and five more throughout Kentucky.[3] Additionally, the brigade commands 214 Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps programs throughout the five states.[4] These "battalions" are usually larger, on average comprising over 150 cadets each.[2]
